My Best Workout Tips

AE738AD5-EA58-4F4B-926A-5F2DBDC8E506

  • Find your own thing! Cardio, weights? Intervals, powerwalks, crossfit? I used to only do cardio (mostly because modeling had gone to my head), but now I’ve realised how much I love weight lifting. I also love intervals or running outside to clear my head. It always helps! But it needs to be outside, if not I just find it way too boring.

  • If you’re feeling super annoyed, angry, frustrated or sad – put on some power music and get to the gym to do your favourite exercises. I always feel like it in some way gives me my strength and power back. I can go back home, take a nice shower, put on some cozy clothes and think new thoughts with a much clearer head.

 

  • Good music or podcasts! Sometimes I want music that makes me give that last push, but somedays I get bored so easily and it can be more of a struggle to go – that’s when I love my podcasts. I usually listen to true crime, and having something interesting to listen to as I make my way to the gym and also do my exercises makes it so much easier on a more slow and unmotivated day.

  • Try new exercises! Ohhh so many times have I gone into a pattern of just doing the same things over and over… You get so bored. Trying new things is always a good idea, and it can easily make you go more often and generally do more work at the gym. Or outside. I find that if you look up the right pages on Instagram you can get some good, new ideas!

 

  • Consistency. If you want results, you can’t just do some sort of exercise once a week every month. It does take some dedication and discipline. The main thing for working out should be staying healthy, but even with that there’s many of us that keeps on saying “I don’t have time”.  You need to plan. Sometimes it might take an early morning or a late night to just get it done. Or if you don’t want to spend the morning or evening at the gym, it might take you putting your gym clothes in your bag for after work. Or that you get up from that couch one hour earlier instead of laying there with your phone in your hand, just scrolling.

  • It needs to be healthy. Too healthy can quickly get very unhealthy. I know. And I know a lot of you guys know. If you’re stressing too much about it, if you feel like you’re losing yourself in any way or that you’re just not okay with the whole food, gym, healthy, strong thing – then stop. Stop and talk to someone who will be there for you to listen and help you out. It should be something you do for the health of your body and mind, it should never go the other way ❤ That will never make you happy. It’s so important to not exclude the life you love to live just because you exercise. Pizza, snacks and lazy days are still so important.

It’s been so long since I’ve done this, but it’s such a good workout! Met up with Emma yesterday like I said and had an intense workout before we went to eat. I got to see a new area as well, which is cool! If you want to follow me even more on my journey here and see more personal and everyday things you can add me on snapchat: martefre.

Here you can see the amazing acai bowls as well! I’ve had one earlier when I just got here, but this one was soooo much better! We had it at Rawberri in Santa Monica, and I will for sure be going back there.

This is what happens when you go out but don’t drink too much, haha. Had such a nice day and I know I would’ve just been laying in bed if I didn’t keep to just a few drinks. For sure so much better like this!

Workout Video?

Sunday in Norway, and I almost forgot how dead it is here compared to London. Almost everything is closed on Sunday and everyone stays inside with their hangover watching movies and films. Quite nice though.

For me it’s not a hangover kinda day, rather trying to be efficient kinda day. Just went gym and now I’m sitting here editing a video for you guys! Dan filmed me doing my favorite legs and glutes workout so I’m excited to show you guys! You’ll also see some of my results in the video. So happy I decided to start doing some weights instead of always running or doing cardio. That being said I don’t do that much cardio now, but I used to walk a lot in London just going to different places or working – so now I’ll make sure to do some hiking or running in nature while I’m here. It’s one of the things I love about my hometown.

Why I’m Only Running On 3 Hours Sleep

  • Priorities…

After such a long time just traveling and working now and then, to working fully as much as I can like now is something I really feel on my body and mind. In a way it’s actually nice, because I’m putting more effort into everything at the same time – it’s now more important then ever to think about what I want to spend every other hour of the day doing. On the other hand my legs hurt after working out, walking and standing all day. Still not a very tough life I know. The only thing I’m worried about is me not spending enough time working on bigger things and what I really want to do, and not just getting caught up in making “ok” money for now. But I know where I wanna go and that I need my priorities right for that.

So even though I was very tired yesterday after a long day, I met Dan and we went gym instead of me just going back to eat and sleep. After a few minutes I didn’t feel tired anymore like normally, and it’s so good. I might have ended up with a few hours less sleep then what I could have had, but that’s something I’ll make up for later.

Now he’s being really nice and making food while I’m about to fall asleep. Hope everyone’s good ❤

This is me just after I woke up and super ready for intervals…

So so this is how we started our last day at my dad’s! We did intervals up and down the hill and in between I did jumping squats and Dan did push ups. It’s so much harder than the intervals on the treadmill!

My phone stopped working so I have been trying to fix it, and now it’s all good except I can’t remember my password to my Apple ID so I’ll have to wait a few days before I can use it again while it’s in recovery or something… Sucks, but there’s nothing I can do so I’ll just have to wait!

Later we’ll be going fishing with my brother! I’ll let you know how many fish I catch 😉
